THINGS OF STONE AND WOOD DEC 15 with special guests Thomas Hugh & Shannon Bourne Twenty-seven years ago a rag-tag bunch of folkies got together and formed a band called Things of Stone & Wood that went on to define Melbourne in the early 90s. Off the back of their top 10 single ‘Happy Birthday Helen’, the band achieved national success, international tours, a gold album ‘The Yearning’ and even a Late Show parody, kicking off a career that would place them as one of Australia’s most loved Folk-Rock bands. Their live show has always been full of energy and passion and whilst they’ve won many an industry award, including an ARIA and APRA Songwriter of the Year, it’s on stage that demonstrates why they’re so loved. Things Of Stone & Wood play the Grand Hotel as part as one of only two VIC appearances, and with no Melbourne date this’ll be bound to be packed and vibing big time.

Continental looks for (another) owner

THE Continental Hotel at Sorrento is up for sale – again – with proprietor Julian Gerner (pictured left) saying its redevelopment is “too big a project to handle alone”. He now wants to sell the 1875 icon for “north of $20 million” and then lease it back from the new owner and run it as his own business. The developer reportedly paid the long-standing Di Pietro family about $15 million in July 2016 and then fought skirmishes with the Mornington Peninsula Shire and Nepean Conservation Group at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal over his proposed changes. He said he had always planned to complete the hotel’s costly redevelopment but “financial” pressures mean he is unable to do so. See story page 7

New laws flagged for ‘party houses’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au OWNERS of so-called “party houses” on the Mornington Peninsula will be in for a tougher time if a new local law gets the nod. The proposal, which the shire says is the first of its kind in the state, will introduce a registration system for owners of short stay rental accommodation and requires them to nominate an appointed agent who must respond to neighbours’ complaints within two hours.

A code of conduct will govern the number of occupants and establish expectations for their behaviour, as well as setting rules on car parking and rubbish disposal. The aim of the proposed law is to address the impacts of anti-social behaviour by occupants of short stay rental accommodation properties across the peninsula. It follows complaints each summer by neighbouring residents about rowdy tenants who ruin their weekends with late-night noise and alcohol-fuelled aggression. Penalties will be imposed for

breaches of the Local Law and the Code of Conduct. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the council had been working with residents and authorities for 12 months to develop plans for a “cooperative approach to prevent antisocial behaviour and to specifically address local conditions and reflect local concerns”. “Council acknowledges the input of the local community, short term rental accommodation operators, as well as that of Victoria police and industry representatives from STAYZ, Air BnB, Holiday Shacks and the

Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board,” she said. Cr Colomb said that while most business owners took a responsible approach to the letting of their properties, a range of issues could cause “significant disruption to neighbouring properties and operators should be held responsible for the behaviour of their customers”. “Problems reported … include anti-social behaviour of occupants, loud noise late into the night, car parking congestion and poor rubbish disposal, which is not acceptable in residential areas.”

A well run short stay rental accommodation market is acknowledged as vital for peninsula tourism. The mayor said the local law would “bring [the industry] more in line with commercial accommodation options”. “The [proposed law] will result in better and more responsible management of these accommodation options and improve amenity to our residents and visitors,” she said. The Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law (Draft) is on display until 5pm, Friday 7 December, at mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay.

Yukon’s wilderness gives artist a new take on life JEWELLERY artist Katrina Newman, of McCrae, has returned from a Canadian Wilderness Artists Residency saying it was “an experience like no other”. “I was surrounded by creative people and the voyage on the Yukon River was inspiring,” she said. “I felt I had found my place and came to feel at home among 11 Canadian artists as we explored the Yukon Territory in a canoe.” Arriving at Whitehorse, capital of the northwest Yukon territory, Newman met up with her trip coordinator, guides, and other artists in the group of two men and 10 women. They spent a week preparing for the 24-day journey, meeting local artists and visiting their studios, hiking near Fish Lake, soaking in the local hot springs, and shopping as a team for supplies which was packed into barrels in order of eating. “I was eager to get on the Yukon River,” Newman said. “I was looking forward to getting out of town, exploring the wilds and getting away from social media and email. The only internet I had was at cafes and the tourist information centre, but with access, there also comes an expectation that you’ll stay in contact with family and friends, keen to hear about your journey in northern Canada. “I felt a relief to switch off when it finally came time to depart.” The waters of the Yukon were like a crystal, with refractions of blue, turquoise, gold, and white as the light faded; in the middle of the river were dark greens, blues and blacks. “Every day on our journey the colours of the river changed and reflected the light, and the changing landscapes that we enjoyed.” The paddlers camped at old settlers’ cottages, supply stations, and woodlots decomposing into the landscape. Three days they docked at Shipyard Island where an old paddle steamer was brought into dry dock for repairs – and never left. Approaching rapids their guides had them practicing peeling and ferrying to prepare for a quick turn outs. “My anxiety was raised with all this preparation, but after all the fuss, there really wasn’t anything to worry about,” she said. “In fact I was a little disappointed that the rapids were not as wild as my imagination.” Northern Canada is the Land of the Midnight Sun, with sufficient light to navigate around a campsite at night without a torch. “The slow descent of the sun made for remarkable light

and the time to collect our thoughts, explore, relax, draw, paint, braid, weave, sing, dance, photograph, walk, swim in the cold water of the river and enjoy our surroundings,” Newman said. Days on the river were filled with songs and banjo music. Treasured possessions were stories from ‘Yukon River’ by Mike Rourke which she took along on her journey. The longest distance paddled in one day was 78km and a highlight was joining in a celebration of First Nations people at one stopover. With the weather was warm and sunny for most of the voyage the artists enjoyed dunking in the cool Yukon water, but a change in the

weather just a few days outside Dawson City brought rain and cooler temperatures. “It allowed us to climb into our warm clothes,” she said. “It was wonderful to see the landscape change with the cloud and mist-covered mountains. With the dim light I fell in love with the Yukon all over again.” There was also a change in water colour at the confluence of the White and Yukon rivers, with silt from the White River clouding the water and making it undrinkable. For an Australian, used to the sounds of birds at dawn, the silence of the Yukon was surprising. Drifting silently they came across a young black bear walking along

the bank, and later saw moose, deer, sheep, frogs, squirrels, beavers, porcupine and a silver fox. From the comfort of their canoes they saw tracks of larger bears and wolves in mud on the bank. “With temperatures often at 30 degrees, the animals would be enjoying the coolness of the forests rather than basking in the heat,” she said. Bears were a real concern. Arriving at a camp site they found a poster warning of an aggressive bear in the area: they left, only to find another sign at the next campsite with the same message – and a fresh set of bear prints as an added warning. Time to keep moving… “The highlights of the residency

S H I R A Z

were the opportunity to connect with the land and its people, to be off grid, to take time out for introspection, to be away from all the distractions that consume our modern days and time,” Newman said. “Since coming home all I have wanted to do is go back, but I realise that even if and when I do the experience will be different. “I’ll probably be travelling alone – not with a group of young and vibrant artists full of energy that help to transform and make such adventures all the more worthwhile.” The artist will be showing her works at her Cinerama Cr, McCrae, studio, 10am-5pm, Sundays 19 and 26 November.

Comment sought on new library hours

Eye for detail: Peninsula Studio Trail artist Hans Van Vlodrop demonstrates his skills. Picture: Supplied

Open studio weekends TWO open studio weekends will be held on the Peninsula Studio Trail where visitors can meet the artists, find out what inspires them and learn about the creative process. Opening times are 10am-5pm, 1819 and 25-26 November. Peninsula Studio Trail comprises a diverse group of artists specialising

in a range of mediums, including ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, jewellery, mixed media, textiles and printmaking. They are happy to discuss their techniques and inspiration with visitors. Organisers say the visits are a great opportunity to buy works directly

from the artists in time for Christmas. Details: Visit peninsulastudiotrail. org or contact Bryan Baldwin at info@peninsulastudiotrail.org or call 0417 120 323. A map may be downloaded or enlarged for directions.

s a m t s i Chr edition PRESENT

LIBRARY users are being invited to have their say on proposed new opening hours at Hastings, Mornington, Rosebud and Somerville branches. This comes after a painful restructure of the Mornington Peninsula Shire library service mid-last year which sought to reduce back-office staff and part-time roles amid complaints of a lack of consultation with staff. The shire’s communities director Robin Adams said at the time the library service was “undergoing the most significant renewal and reform process since its inception”. “This began with the major refurbishment of the mobile library to a state of the art facility for our isolated townships,” he said. Other changes are new layouts and self-serve kiosks and alterations to staff roles. Now, with the dust settled, the shire is seeking comment to “enable our team to provide more customerfocused service and additional programs”. “We’re now looking at how we can improve our opening hours across all our libraries.” Under the proposed changes the four branches would open all day Mondays, instead of three closing at 2pm and Somerville not opening at all. Hastings branch has minor changes to its opening hours and an extra hour has been added at Somerville on Saturdays. It is also proposed to open Mornington Library on Sundays, 11am-3pm. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the

council was considering the changes to opening hours to “ensure hours aligned with community use and expectations”. “Our libraries are a free community service truly loved by all ages. From babies to seniors and everyone in between, visitors can enjoy hundreds of general books, DVDs, music, online homework help, a range digital resources and access to free Wi-Fi and PCs,” she said. “To maximise access to these great services, the proposed opening hours are based on current and future visitation at each branch to ensure the hours offered are best suited to the local community around each library.” The mayor said the current library opening hours had been fixed for many years and involved all libraries being closed on Monday afternoons. “The proposed changes bring an additional 21 total opening hours across the four branches and should better meet the expectations and demand from our library members. The shire says it will compile a “detailed business report” after the community feedback is collated. This is expected to be presented back to the council for a decision early in the new year. Have a say online at mornpen.vic. gov.au/haveyoursay or in person at a library branch, the shire’s mobile library or at shire customer service centres. Stephen Taylor

Hotel’s revamp ‘too big to handle alone’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au CONTINENTAL Hotel proprietor Julian Gerner has put the historic Sorrento pub back on the market after “coming to the conclusion that [its redevelopment] is too big a project to handle alone”. He now wants to sell the 1875 icon for “north of $20 million” and then lease it back from the new owner and run it as his own business. Asked why he had changed his mind and listed the hotel after confirming to The News last month that he was determined to see its transformation through, he said: “There were a couple of reasons [but] it was a financial decision because I don’t have the kind of money [needed] to go to the market.” “Hopefully I will get the pub back in the end.” Mr Gerner accepted that “cynics will be cynics” but denied suggestions he had always intended to sell the hotel after gaining relevant permits. “The plan was always to finish the development,” he said. “I own it 100 per cent [but] there was originally talk of a joint-venture partner [coming in]. He agreed the property was a “lot more buyable now with permits in place than it was three years ago”. Sorrento chamber of commerce vice president Marc Clavin said he was disappointed the hotel precinct would remain inactive over the busy summer period. “It represents a huge slice of the street; it’s the gateway to

Sorrento and bookends the shopping strip,” he said. Nepean Conservation Group president Dr Ursula de Jong said the impending sale was “something the community thought would happen”. “We always had concerns that he [Mr Gerner] would not have the money to take it forward,” she said. “The fact that it is up for sale again is a worry because we don’t know who

is going to buy it.” The developer reportedly paid the long-standing Di Pietro family about $15 million in July 2016 and then fought skirmishes with the Mornington Peninsula Shire and Nepean Conservation Group at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal over his proposed changes. These centred on the building of 16 apartments at the rear, extra hotel

rooms and commercial premises and the contentious purchase of an adjoining – previously public – car park. “Buying the car park [for a reported $1.8 million] was the missing link,” Mr Gerner said. “I have worked hard to get the development as a whole into a state which I think is viable,” he said. “There’s a lot of money to be spent but I have also spent a lot.

“I have worked hard with the shire, Heritage Victoria and architectural advisers on the project and I have gone as far as I can go.” The property is listed with both CBRE and Sotheby’s who will look locally and overseas for a new owner – even in China. Perhaps hoping to improve sales prospects, Mr Gerner added: “There are no more regulatory hurdles to overcome.” The hotel has remained vacant since settlement last year. “It used to be a thriving destination for young people,” Mr Clavin said. “It had the bars and a disco – now there’s nothing …” He echoed a commonly-held view that the hotel could have been kept going as a viable concern in the meantime “at least until the wrecking ball came through”. Dr de Jong said the state of the façade of the historic building, which is on the state register, was disappointing. “The limestone is failing, the windows are rotting, the stucco is coming off and there is a tonne of vegetation growing on the turret,” she said. Compounding their concerns is the sale board which highlights “all the things we fought against”. Dr de Jong said the group hoped to meet with the shire to discuss the terms and conditions of Mr Gerner’s development permits. “The shire has an obligation because the hotel is in a heritage zone and it must decide how it is going to deal with the new owner,” she said.

‘Unemployed workers’ united Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A UNION for the unemployed may seem like a contradiction in terms but that’s exactly what an organisation setting up shop in Frankston is all about. Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union volunteers will host fortnightly meetings at Frankston Arts Centre to help people on the dole negotiate the welfare system and know their rights when dealing with Centrelink and job agencies. “Our mission at the Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union is to fight for the basic human rights of unemployed Australians, most of whom are living in poverty,” the group’s mission state-

ment says. “We are fighting back against Australia’s unfair welfare system. It was recently revealed that the basic Newstart payment is only half of what Australians need to live out of poverty.” Frankston co-organiser Paul Callanan said the Frankston branch of the AUWU is open to people “from Portsea to Mentone and Crib Point to Cranbourne” and it is free to join. “It makes sense to have a Frankston branch taking in all those areas,” he said. The organisation “run for the unemployed by the unemployed” is not a registered union and is an incorporated association, according to Consumer Affairs Victoria records. The group’s website declares “official endorsements from National Union of Workers (NUW) and the Electrical

Trades Union (ETU)”. Federal Liberal Employment Minister Michaelia Cash slammed the AUWU in June, saying the group’s “sole purpose appears to be keeping members out of gainful employment and encouraging them to shirk their responsibilities.” Mr Callanan — a former taxi driver, multi-storey plumber and employee of the Cain government era Victorian Economic Development Corporation — said he is helping the AUWU with spreading the word about the nascent Frankston branch online. The AUWU is calling on all Centrelink payments to be increased to $517 a week; work for the dole programs to be abolished and the axing of privately owned job agencies in favour or reinstating the Commonwealth Employment

Service to get the unemployed back to work. AUWU Frankston branch convener Fae Roth, a Hastings resident and former factory company director, said she got involved in helping the organisation after hearing about its work on community radio station 3CR. “I don’t think the general public realises how tough some people are doing it,” she said. “Unemployment, redundancies and job losses are affecting people directly more than anything else I can think of in horrific ways.” She said the factory she worked at for many years was eventually forced to shut its doors due to cheap overseas imports. The group opposes mandatory drug testing for the unemployed, increased

waiting times for the dole and “the completely unjustified expansion of cashless welfare” featuring debit cards for those receiving welfare payments. An editorial in the September edition of its Fightback! newsletter states: “With the Australian Labor Party and a number on the cross bench failing to commit to voting one way or the other on a number of issues, it’s up to us to let them know why they should oppose these punitive measures”. “I’m hoping our Frankston branch will be the prototype and role model that will inspire AUWU branches to open up all over Melbourne,” Ms Roth said. “It’s just so extreme what the parliamentarians get compared to how the unemployed are treated.”

NEWS DESK Foot found on beach

No fix yet for PARC plumbing problem

HUMAN remains found washed up on the beach at Fingal are thought to be those of a 78-year-old fisherman who was swept off rocks at Blairgowrie ocean beach, Sunday 29 October. A woman walking along Gunnamatta beach found a fishing boot with a man’s foot inside near the end of Truemans Rd, 11.05am, Tuesday 7 November, and called police. The fibia and tibia were protruding. Police and emergency service crews last week scaled down their search for Wantirna man Yik Sua Hong who was last seen standing on rocks at one of his regular fishing spots at noon. A surfer told police deteriorating weather conditions were generating huge seas when he saw the man, who was possibly later swept into the sea. The man’s family had reportedly visited the scene of his disappearance every day. Extensive searches by the Air Wing and Parks Victoria earlier in the week proved fruitless. Sergeant Mick Russell, of Rosebud police, said the remains had been sent for analysis. He said people finding remains should leave them in place and call 000.

Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A PLUMBING problem continues to plague the two main swimming pools at the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre. The PARC’s main 50-metre pool, aquatic playground and a learn-toswim pool have been closed for more than a month after a plumbing system malfunction. Leisure centre management initially predicted the pools would reopen by 27 October but the plumbing problem seems to be more complex than first thought. “Following a critical failure of the complex plumbing infrastructure within the 50m pool balance tank at PARC, specialist independent consultants have been engaged to assess the cause and to redesign the infrastructure to ensure such an issue does not occur again,” Peninsula Leisure CEO Tim Gledhill said last week. “Peninsula Leisure is working closely with Frankston City Council on this matter. We are currently waiting to receive the final assessment report before repair works can commence. “Until the report is received and the substantial works commence, we are unable to confirm when we will reopen.” The gym, wellness centre and other fitness operations remain open to the public. Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd was established in 2012 and is wholly owned by Frankston Council.

ates the PARC and the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre in Frankston North. Councillors voted to reappoint Peninsula Leisure chair Roseanne Healy and board member Phillip Johnson, also the chief financial officer of South East Water, last month until October 2020. Five Peninsula Leisure board members are collectively paid about $116,000 a year. PARC won the statewide Aquatic

Recreation Victoria Facility Management Award last year. Council statistics show about 850,000 people visit the sports, swimming and recreation centre each year. Councillors voted in May to stop Peninsula Leisure “tendering for projects outside of their core obligation, that being the management of PARC and the Pines pool”. It emerged that Peninsula Leisure

had talks with Mornington Peninsula Shire council about possibly managing peninsula sports centres. The shire announced in August that the management of five of its leisure centres has been outsourced to private operator Belgravia Leisure from 29 October. Mr Gledhill said Peninsula Leisure will keep PARC members up to date with the progress of the plumbling solution.

THREE phone towers will be built at Tuerong, Tuerong West and Main Ridge West. They will offer “consistent mobile coverage to more than 200 premises that previously had poor or no mobile services”, according to innovation and digital economy minister Philip Dalidakis. The towers are among 25 to be built throughout regional Victoria providing 5000 households and businesses with new or improved mobile coverage in a partnership between Optus and the state government. “Telecommunications infrastructure is crucial for the growth, liveability and safety of regional Victorian households and businesses, and more will be connected than ever before,” Mr Dalidakis said. Mr Dalidakis said the state government had invested almost $31 million in 166 new mobile towers across Victoria, connecting 20,000 premises that previously had no or poor mobile coverage.

We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

“The Voice of the Peninsula”, community radio station RPP FM, has opened its first pop-up studio, away from its Mornington base, at Frankston’s Bayside Shopping Centre. RPP FM’s new studio shop front at Balmoral Walk hit the airwaves for the first time last Friday (10 November). “Local radio depends on local people.

Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula on 98.3FM. In 2011, the community radio station -- then known as 3RPP -- decided to move from Moorooduc Coolstores to a classroom block at the former Mornington Secondary College site on Wilsons Rd. Frankston Council at the time offered the station a section of the former Milpara Park aged care hostel in Ebdale St but the proposed annual rent of $90 per square metre was not regarded as “a community group rate” by radio station management who opted to take a Mornington Peninsula Shire council offer of a move to Mornington.

Rosebud ‘carer’s place’ set to open A CARER information and support advocate will work two days a week at the Uniting Church, Rosebud, to assist those with disabilities and their parents/carers to receive the information and support they need from the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Catherine Trevorrow was appointed by Community Lifestyle Accommodation (CLA) after it received funding and support for her role from a range of groups. These included the Department of Health and Human Services, Southern Mornington Peninsula Uniting Church and Southern Peninsula Community Fund as well as a local philanthropic trust. CLA also contributed. CLA secretary Marie Hell said pre-planning was important before participants and their families met with NDIS planners. Although based at the church, Ms Trevorrow will be able to visit families at home on a needs basis. “She will work alongside families to find solutions,” Ms Hell said. “[Ms Trevorrow] will be an accessible first point of contact and response for families/carers seeking information and support in relation to transition to the NDIS. “[She] will support family/carer readiness to engage with the NDIS and its planners and administrators, and offer forums and workshops to prepare for current and future support arrangements.” Ms Hell said the emphasis would be on providing information and linking local services, supports and government assistance; providing peer support and carer advocacy; developing proposals and solutions

around key issues facing carers, and monitoring pensions and entitlements. She said she was grateful to MPs, including Eastern Victoria’s Daniel Mulino and Nepean candidate Russell Joseph, who “supported CLA with our submission to Health and Human Services Minister Martin Foley”. She said consultant Marsha Sheridan assisted CLA with its paperwork. CLA is now working with Justin Nix, of Equitable Access Solutions, who is writing a housing paper on the “critical lack of housing options for older adults with an intellectual disability still living at home [on the Mornington Peninsula] with their ageing carers”. “CLA will use this housing paper to lobby government and the National Disability Insurance Agency,” Ms Hell said. “We cannot keep burying our heads in the sand and doing nothing. As a nation the time has come to get serious in providing assistance to one of the most vulnerable groups in our community – those with severe/ profound intellectual disabilities living at home with their ageing carers who are in their 70s and 80s. “Our older carers need to know their sons and daughters are in safe accommodation before they die.” Brotherhood of St Laurence Local Area Coordinator Clare Tucker was guest speaker at CLA’s annual meeting held yesterday (Monday 13 November) at the Mornington Shire Offices in Queen St. Stephen Taylor

Operation Furlong race has been run “The ceiling was dropping and the couch was set alight and we did well to pull the fire up,” he said.

Rude awakening

A WOMAN dozing on the couch awoke to the crackling sounds of fire taking hold of the rear of her Dromana house, Wednesday 1 November. An electrical fault may have been to blame for the fire in Monaco Pd, 3.45pm, which caused “significant damage”. Dromana CFA crews put out the fire and the woman was taken to Frankston Hospital with smoke inhalation.

Can we go home now? Blow in the bag: Police breath-test drivers during Operation Furlong. Picture: Supplied

POLICE breath-tested about 14,000 drivers in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire council areas over the Melbourne Cup long weekend with 28 being found to be either drink-ordrug driving. Another 315 traffic offences were detected, but only two serious injury collisions were recorded, which police said was pleasing “considering the amount of traffic that flowed through the area”. A 46-year-old Mt Eliza woman was allegedly driving at 107 kph in a 80kph zone when Somerville Highway Patrol intercepted her on Nepean Highway, Mornington, 2am, Wednesday 8 November. She blew 0.117 per cent and lost her licence on-the-spot for 11 months and received $1110 in fines.

The woman said she had been drinking at a function all day, and thought she might be over the limit but drove anyway as she “needed to get home”. Her weekend could have been a lot worse if she had been involved in a collision and killed or seriously injured herself or someone else, police said.

Fire in eaves

AN electrical fire which started in power lines caused $30,000 damage to an elevated holiday house at Rye, 8pm, Monday 6 November. A neighbour said she smelled smoke in Michael St and saw sparks coming from wires leading to the house. It spread to the eaves and inside the roof cavity. Rye CFA Lieutenant Eddie Matt said crews from Rye, Sorrento and Rosebud had the blaze under control in 15 minutes.

STOLEN property with a Japanese theme is awaiting its owner at Rosebud police station. The recovered property is believed to have come from a series of burglaries on the peninsula in July, with the Japanese-themed items possibly from Tootgarook. While most items have been returned to their owners, some has not been identified and sits on the shelves. “We believe [it] has possibly come from a burglary on a holiday home; it all has a Japanese theme even though there are several different types of items,” property officer Tony Paterson said. Anyone identifying the items is asked to call 5986 0422 during business hours. Others missing property will have to describe the items and state where it has come from to claim it.

Package provides ‘much needed’ mental health services MORNINGTON Peninsula residents are being offered access to new, free, mental health support services as part of a federal government $11 million funding package across south-east Melbourne. The services cover accessible psychological interventions (APIs) to support those with mild/moderate mental health conditions, and Mental Health Integrated Complex Care (MHICC) services to support those with severe/complex mental illness. The API services include counselling which can be delivered in individual, family or group settings, and the MHICC services include clinical nursing services, family support and liaison, care co-ordination and improving access to psychiatrist and psychological care. The services, starting on 1 December, will be delivered by Mornington-based mental health organisation Mentis Assist, which won the tender through South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) earlier this year. They are primarily for those who have a health care card or can’t afford/access similar services, as well as priority groups including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, people living in residential aged care facilities, people with perinatal depression and those who have experienced family violence. Anyone can call the mental health intake number 1800 862 363 during business hours for referral

information. Flinders MP and science minister Greg Hunt said the services had been designed in line with best practice mental health guidelines, and extensive consumer and professional consultation. “These services are flexible, with the consumer able to step up or step down to different intensity support as their needs change over time,” he said. “It will now be easier for peninsula residents to access the right mental health service or find out where to get support.” The minister said having the one point of contact for support “will help address a common complaint from constituents about how hard and confusing it is to navigate the mental health system”. SEMPHN boss Elizabeth Deveny said the new services would provide “much needed assistance” to Mornington Peninsula residents. “As part of our Mental Health Stepped Care Model, these services are based on national best practice guidelines and 18 months’ consultation with consumers, carers, health professionals and service providers. It’s wonderful to be at the point of launching them to our community,” she said. “The new service models are truly innovative and designed to reach people who have been missing out on the mental health support they need.”

A BRAND new vessel, purpose built to operate the French Island Ferry service, has arrived in Westernport Bay this week and has begun daily operation. The new MV Naturaliste is an impressive 95 passenger vessel that will deliver a new level of comfort for guests. It is fully airconditioned and complete with large viewing windows and outside deck seating on the lower and upper levels. Named ‘MV Naturaliste’ after the ship captained by Jacque Hamelin who named French Island in 1802, the fast catamaran vessel is 18 meters in length with a total capacity of 95 passengers. Western Port Ferries CEO Matt McDonald says the MV Naturaliste provides a safe and comfortable crossing in almost all weather conditions. “The French Island Ferry provides an important connection to the mainland for French Island residents. It is also an extremely popular touring route for visitors to the area”, said Mr McDonald.

Along with the launch of the new vessel, the French Island Ferry timetable has been expanded to offer 20 new additional ferry services throughout the day. In coming weeks, Western Port Ferries will introduce online bookings and an electronic ticketing system onboard the ferries. Western Port Ferries has been operating the passenger ferry service between Stony Point, on the Mornington Peninsula, Cowes on Phillip Island and Tankerton on French Island since 1 July this year. The new ferry is just one of the exciting new developments affecting French Island with new wildlife and historic tours scheduled to commence on the Island in late November. Naturaliste Tours will be the only nature-based tour operator on the island offering small group touring options for guests.

Silver Lining Ride rolls through Rye THE Silver Lining Ride set out from Adelaide on 20 October on a nine day, 1013 Km ride to the MCG, to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). Included in the riding pack was Clint Stanaway, Channel Nine presenter who was riding to honour a friend and raise money to fight against ovarian cancer. On Sunday 29 October the riding pack came through Rye and stopped in front of the Rye Community Bank Branch for a live cross to the Today Show. During the cross Gary Sanford, Senior Manager, Rye, Dromana & Rosebud Community Bank branches made a presentation to OCRF of $5,000.

“In acknowledgment of the Silver Lining Ride and its fund raising for Ovarian Cancer Research, I’d like to say a few words,” said Mr Sanford. “Fifty percent of our customers are female. Ninety percent of our branch staff are female. Seventy-five percent of our managers are female, and I also have four daughters and a wife who are all susceptible to this insidious disease.” “On behalf of all our customers, who make donations like these possible, it gives me great pleasure to donate $5,000 towards this cause.” Clint Stanaway acknowledged that this donation had taken the ride’s fund raising to over $90,000.

Family celebration had a Scottish lilt Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au PIPING in the haggis was a highlight of the 60-year celebration party put on by the Rydels of Dromana and Rosebud. The family of proud Scottish migrants commemorated their arrival in Australia with a function for about 60 family and friends at the Masonic Hall in Barkly St, Mornington, on Sunday 22 October. Reminiscing about the event, 75-year-old Stanley Rydel said he was 14 when he arrived on the Sitmar shipping line’s Fair Sea with his parents Stanley (senior), mother Isabel, both deceased, and brother John in 1957 from Arbroath on the east coast, near Dundee, which is famous for its smoked haddock. “We berthed at Station pier Port Melbourne where I was amazed to see four luxury liners on Cup Day,” he said. “We came out as 10 pound Poms but my brother came out on Dad’s passport so he got here for nothing.” Daughter Heather said her father and his brother had “sailed out here with nothing but a couple of suitcases after their parents met during the war”. “People didn’t think the ship was going to make it due to the horrific weather conditions so a lot of people were [at Station pier] to meet the ship when it docked,” she said. Mr Rydel said the family worked hard to get established after being sponsored here by his mother’s

sister, Violet. “We lived at Preston and then managed to buy a house at the former Olympic Village at West Heidelberg after I saw some houses being built with a sign outside saying only a deposit was required,” he said. “I gave up school and entered the building trade (later becoming a plasterer) so I could put in a few pounds each week. “Mum and dad were there for years, with dad selling cars for Gould’s Motors in Northcote, before moving to Montmorency, then Ferntree Gully and Wantirna South.” After trying their hand at rearing angora goats in the Wimmera, Stan Rydel and wife Joy returned to the Melbourne but found they “couldn’t live in town anymore”. “We had holidayed at Dromana before and liked the quiet area and decided to buy a house in James St in 1990,” he said. Completing the loop, brother John settled in Blairgowrie and their parents moved to Rosebud. After buying a van, Mr Rydel became a part-time courier on the Mornington Peninsula before “retiring for good” in 1995. Guests at the 60-year function enjoyed a range of Scottish recipes, including a favourite: black pudding. Mr Rydel said the family had demurred on whether or not to host a function at all. “Then Joy said, ‘We should do something because 60 years is a great thing’,” he said. “Now I’m glad we did.”

No to three storeys A big thank you to the thousands of residents who made the effort to sign and return the petition opposing the state government’s introduction of three-storey, 11-metre high development in the peninsula’s residential areas, and also support for the preservation of the Green Wedge. The planning changes, resulting in condemnation and an overwhelming response from the community, are by far the issue of greatest concern which the McCrae Action Group has encountered since its inception over 10 years ago. The new height limits were introduced by the government in March without consulting council or the community. Council is opposing the changes and the McCrae Action Group is just one of a number of community groups assisting Peninsula Speaks with the petition in support of council. The petition is being submitted in stages to parliament. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb says councillors “must take heart” from community opposition to changes making a significant negative impact on the special character and uniqueness of the Mornington Peninsula. The preservation of the peninsula is not only a matter of importance for the local community but is also of vital important for all Melburnians and Victorians. The peninsula provides a much needed alternative to suburban Melbourne’s densely populated, bitumen and concrete environment. The peninsula’s contribution to making Melbourne “a liveable city” is immeasurable and is confirmed by the annual 4.2 million day trip visitors and 4.2 million overnight stays. It is also vital for the region’s economy by generating an estimated $979 million in 2014. The response to the petition has been simply limited by the ability to get the petition letterboxed across the whole of the peninsula. If you are concerned with the planning changes and can help then you can find the petition at peninsulaspeaks.org or email info@ peninsulaspeaks.org.au Dr Alan Nelsen, McCrae Action Group

Pin blame on the donkey? Who’s the “donkey” that instigated the zebra crossing on the Barkly St/Main St roundabout? The purpose of a roundabout is creating traffic flow at a crossroads, so why would you have a roundabout that stops traffic flow by installing two pedestrian crossings on the through road? I can understand that pedestrians must have a safe place to cross a road and the previous crossing was confusing with walking access through the traffic island meaning pedestrians and motorists sometimes were unsure of who had the right of way (cars had the right of way). Now with the pedestrian (zebra) crossing placed on the roundabout the donkey has created a bottleneck with cars stuck on the roundabout, therefore cars are unable to drive through, there are lines of traffic down Main St as vehicles try to turn left and cars turning right or left are stuck in the middle of the roundabout going nowhere. I have also witnessed the dangerous situation of cars driving straight through the crossing while people are either on or attempting to cross.

This situation presents greater danger because the islands have now been removed. I’ve always been told “you’ve shown me the problem, what’s the solution?”. Simple, move the crossing further up and down Barkly St. Currently you will witness pedestrians crossing the road further up the road anyway and not using the dedicated crossing. I suggest putting the islands back with no opening and installing a small steel art form sculptured fence running part way down the middle of the island to add some beautification to the street. Graeme Brassington, Mornington

Luxury stay for ill, informed A five-day stay (my 4th) at our very own luxurious Rosebud Hospital where ‘15 minutes of fame’ (and then some) is a way of life for the ill inhabitants therein, myself included. No hint of shyness; out trots the life stories. Amazing stuff. Oh, to have a tape recorder. (Yes, I have an iPhone but it’s not the same, and it’s rude). We all have our problems and it helps to have someone who listens or at least appears to. Let’s hear it for the listeners, the female nurses, requiring high art knowledge, instinct, in psychological studies. How to listen, intrigued, but to escape (due to the needs of all the patients) in the nicest possible way; often some returning to continue from where it was left dangling. Clearly a special breed. Lots of “a day at a time”, obviously. “Nip it in the bud” got its share of mentions. At least two Kathleen ‘Kath’ Darleen Day Knights are here. No offence. Nice people. Jane Turner no doubt spent time at Rosebud Hospital with either a tape recorder or a wonderful memory. Add in the pressure of days on end without a smoke. Dinner of steamed fish in white sauce with mashed potatoes, followed by blancmange and raspberry. Pondering. If I maintain my no smoking I’m looking to a long future of these meals, better still maybe even quiche, with spinach and feta? I ventured ‘once’ into a loose political discussion about “who do you like in Queensland?”. Answer: “I think Pauline has her heart in the right place”. Pauline has a heart? Made from the same stuff as Peter Dutton’s? Saved from my flirtation with brain damage by the nurses, the Rosebud Hospital nurses. Triple orchids. Cliff Ellen, Rye (care of Rosebud Hospital)

‘Menace’ on Main St With psychopathic lunatics and terrorists driving vehicles down footpaths in parts of the world, my concern is drawn to Mornington. Up and down Main St there are enclosures next to the gutter, within which there are are people seated at tables drinking coffee. It’s the same in other towns. Council must either fit up protective concrete bollards at a cost of millions of dollars or abolish

More buses needed: The newly-formed Transport Community Action Advisory Group is calling on better public transport access across the Mornington Peninsula.

these silly, unnecessary, nuisance obstructions to pedestrian movement. I think some councillors should go to Paris or Rome or somewhere to see how it’s done. B. A. Mitchelson, Mornington

Inadequate bus services Many areas across the Mornington Peninsula have very poor or no public bus access at all. The last review was held over 10 years ago when many recommendations were tabled and noted, of which only two were implemented. In many areas, residents must utilise private transport to access their nearest bus stop, either being dropped off or finding suitable parking or by foot which can be a 40-minute walk or more on undulating, unmade roads. The purpose of public transport is to enable accessible and safe travel for patrons of all ages to their places of education, employment, health/ sporting and community activities. Currently, many areas of the peninsula do not have this service, which then adds to our road and parking congestion issues, which is escalated during holiday periods. The recently formed TCAAG (Transport Community Action Advisory Group) is currently requesting a review from the state government to identify, fund, and resolve shortfalls to ensure a more comprehensive and accessible bus system for the Mornington Peninsula. If you wish to support the TCAAG please participate in the electronic petition see parliament.vic.gov. au/council/petitions/electronic-petitions/view-epetitions/details/12/45 online. On behalf of the many residents I recently visited in the Mount Martha area, thank you for your time and support. May we look forward to improved bus routes and timetables to enable us to travel by public transport. Your participation

Instead of attending a conference overseas and wasting ratepayers money he should be taking a drive around the peninsula to see all the potholes and “rough surface” on our roads that the council is responsible for and putting the cost of his trip towards the repairs that are so badly needed. Mr Cowie is a CEO not am politician. Also feel money is being wasted in the beautifying of High Street, Hastings, doing away with the much needed car parking spaces that are required. Doreen Greve, Bittern

Exhibit A on buses The walk to the station is a brisk six minutes. I can do this. Supposed to be finished May. It is now October! I wanted to take my twin sister to the Dior exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. Jenny is on a stick and could not manage the walk to the station. I have written three letters to Jacinta Allan, Transport Minister, to find out when buses will be parking at station. NO answer at all! I am disgusted, not to hear one word from Ms. Allan. Exhibition closed 7 November. Jane Drummond, Capel Sound

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Downward retains seat as Nationalists win Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE State Elections were held on Thursday and resulted in the defeat of the Ministrial Party. A feature of the results is the success achieved by candidates standing in the interests of the Farmers’ Union. There was very little excitement in the Mornington electorate. Mr Downward (the old member) was opposed by Mr R. M. Anderson. *** GNR. H. M. Goodwin, second son of M. M. E. Goodwin, Cranbourne Rd Frankston, has been officially reported wounded. At present the nature of the wound is not known. Two of his brothers are also at the front, one of whom has been wounded twice. *** GUNNER H. G. Upton, previously reported dangerously wounded, has made satisfactory improvement and is now in Norwich Hospital England. *** WE are pleased to note that Mrs Alf Davis of Mount Eliza, who underwent a serious operation at the Womens Hospital last week, is now making satisfactory progress towards recovery. *** ARCHBISHOP Clarke of Melbourne will visit Hastings during the weekend and will preach at All Saint’s Church Tyabb, on Sunday Nov 18th at 3p.m. *** AN epidemic has broken out on Mr Slaney’s place, “Nyora” amongst the young lambs, a number of them dy-

ing from some lung trouble. *** A VERY successful and thoroughly enjoyable evening was spent in the Frankston Hall, on Friday, November 9th, as a result of the efforts of the local Red Cross and the Wattle Club to provide funds to enable them to give the men at Langwarrin Camp a Xmas treat. The first part of the evening was devoted to a guessing competition which was won by Miss Nolan and Mr Oates, the prizes for which were presented by Mrs A. D. Box and Mrs Hartland. After an excellent supper, dancing commenced and was continued with enthusiasm till morning. *** A JAPANESE Fair will be held in the Somerville Mechanics’ Hall, on Wednesday afternoon and evening, in aid of the Somerville State School Patriotic funds. *** A GOOD many applications to have the electric light installed have been made in this district, and inquiries are being made when it is likely that the light will be installed. *** ON Monday evening next a public citizens’ meeting will be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall under the auspices of the local branch of the W.C.T.U. and Rechabites, when Mrs Helen Barton, the noted temperance lecturer, will give an address. This lady who is spoken of as a gifted speaker, and the queen of Scottish orators, is at present touring Australia in the interest of the W.C.T.U.

*** THE usual Wattle Club dance will not be held this (Saturday) evening, owing to the hall not being available. *** T. REEVES begs to announced that he has opened a Milk Round. And will reside in Frankston as soon as a suitable place is available. *** ALEX. Scott and Co. Pty. Ltd will hold a Special Sale of Horses as 70 Horses and Ponies. From Balnarring‚—12 Horses and Ponies. From Moorooduc—10 Medium Draughts and Light Horses. From Red Hill—8 Useful Horses and 2 Good Ponies. *** Somerville Hospital. I desire to contradict a report that a patient has died in my hospital from blood poisoning. This is absolutely untrue. Since the hospital was open 2 years ago, no patient has died of any infectious disease whatever. MAUD HODGINS. *** The drowning season. To The Editor. Sir.—I desire to bring before your readers the work and objects of the Royal Life Saving Society to promote technical education in life saving and resuscitation of the apparently drowned. A short time ago, two men were crossing the river Yarra at Melbourne in a small boat, when it capsized and although there were 10.000 people on the river bank yet no attempt was made to endeavour to rescue them from a watery grave; both men were drowned. During the past season a very

large number of lives have been lost through the floods, and it is quite evident that the work of the society is unknown to the majority of the people in Victoria. Last year no less than 154 persons lost their lives by accidental drowning in this State. There are hundreds of abortive efforts at rescue every year, and there are many in which a single tragedy is made into a double one through the absence of a little simple knowledge on the part of the intended rescuer. The knowledge of the Schafer method of resuscitation is a most useful one and can be learnt in five minutes, and is invaluable where a person is brought out of the water apparently drowned. Cases are on record where apparently drowned persons have been restored after many hours of hard work. That the ability ought to be cultivated is unquestionable. It should be our chief object, and the chances of successfully rendering efficient and increased. *** THE monthly meeting of the Council was held on Thursday, 8th November. Present Crs Oates, (President) Clements, Watt, Mason, Murray, Longmuir, Unthank and Hodgins Apology for non attendance was received from Cr Turner. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. CORRESPONDENCE From Country Roads Board, stating that £300 for Frankston-Flinders Road, and £300 for Point Nepean Road, has been allotted for maintain-

ance for the current financial year— Received. MR Brody asking if there is any objection to a plate being placed in the gardens in Frankston to commemorate the memory of the late John Reynolds. Cr Hodgins moved that while the council is in sympathy with the bereavement they did not think the garden a proper place to put a plate. Seconded by Cr Clements and carried. *** SATURDAY last, 10th November, was the day fixed by the Mount Eliza residents to unveil a Roll of Honor Board at the local State School, in memory of 22 of the local young men who had enlisted and fought in defence of their country, some of whom had paid the supreme sacrifice, some had been wounded, while some were still at the front. Great interest was taken in the event. *** CR LONGMUIR brought under the notice of the Council the case of an old man who was incapable, ill and unable to look after himself, being dependent on the charity of neighbors for his existence. He was bedridden. Cr Mason moved that the Health Officer be asked to look into the case and take steps to have the old man removed to some institution. Seconded by Cr Longmuir and carried. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 17 November 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Great Salad Swindle of Christmas 2016 By Stuart McCullough YOU’D do the same. But the whole thing had such momentum that it was far easier to continue the lie than it was to set the record straight. You could almost go so far as to describe the entire misunderstanding not as an error but, rather, as destiny. It all came down to a moment that, once passed, meant it was forever too late to pipe up. It was a instant that passed by all too quickly and by merely equivocating, I found myself neck-deep in an awesome fabrication. ‘Bring a plate’. These are the defining words of my childhood. No social occasion was complete without some kind of gastronomical offering to the food gods. There was an art to bringing a plate. You had to come with something that was a certified crowd-pleaser while not treading on some else’s toes. Cold buttered pikelets were a staple but we never brought them – that was clearly someone else’s signature dish. To bring our own cold buttered pikelets would have been an act of naked aggression. That kind of bare-knuckled hostility has no place over morning tea. On this occasion, we weren’t heading to some mere morning tea or afternoon soiree. We were heading to Christmas lunch with family members. No only were we heading to lunch, we were profoundly late. It was one of those ‘celebrating Christmas the week before Christmas’ kind of things, familiar to anyone with complicated familes and loads of in-laws to accommodate. Christmas used to be simple. Now it’s something that requires planning

Home made, in a home that belongs to someone else: Preparations have begun for family Christmas lunch, 2017

complete with an Excel spreadsheet and graphs. The trouble with celebrating Christmas the week before actual Christmas is you’re in that awkward space of being expected to celebrate before work finishes. Put simply, we weren’t so much time poor as we were time impoverished. We were to bring a plate. But this

Southern Peninsula News 14 November 2017

wasn’t those ‘do as you please’ type of events. Instead, we were instructed to bring a plate with something specific on it; namely, salad. Cold buttered pikelets were not going to get an airing. In this world, there are two kinds of salad. There’s simple salad, which really amounts to little more than tipping the contents of your crisper into

a bowl before splashing French dressing around. Then there’s super salad, which takes time and effort with the end result being something closer to a piece of art than lunch. Time said I should prepare the former, when I really wanted to do the latter. Keen to impress my family but lacking the time and (possibly) the ingredients to do so, I made a fateful decision. Rather than pour my heart and soul into making a greatest salad the world had ever seen, I elected to outsource. The tyres squealed as I hurriedly pulled up outside the delicatessen before racing inside. It was really no more complicated than pointing and saying ‘I want that one!’ before I left with lunch under my arm. But because this was Christmas and things ought to look nice, I emptied the store-bought salad out of the plastic container into a nice dish. I thought I was being considerate. It never occurred to me that this might be an act of deception. We blew through the door in a rush and plonked our plate down on the kitchen bench where it sat with all the other plates. That, so I thought, was that. What I hadn’t counted on was critical acclaim. There was something uniquely magnetic about that salad that drew family members far and wide. They gathered around it and gasped at was clearly the most beautiful salad ever created. It was difficult to look away. It was then that one of my sisters turned and asked how I’d made it. I hesitated. In retrospect, it was the pause that undid me. That was the instant that a minor misunderstanding blossomed into a fully-fledged decep-

tion. Seldom has quinoa been part of a ruse as grand as this. In a split second, I was transformed from someone who’d done his best under difficult circumstances to a master of trickery. All it took was silence. By not declaring the fact that my contribution to the salad had been to point and then pay, I was part of a web of lies. I took an extra piece of chicken as I contemplated the dreadful moral dilemma I now found myself in. My family were really keen to learn more about the salad. How had I prepared it? Was it the first time I’d made it? And, fatefully, could they have the recipe? Having started the lie by saying nothing, I was now offering answers to all these questions and more. But as I shoveled a forkful of quinoa salad over my lips, I could barely taste anything; a fact I put down to the awkwardness of the situation rather than a fault with the salad itself. As we left, empty bowl tucked under my arm, I thought about confessing. But it was too late. To expose the truth at this late stage would prompt more questions than answers. Since that day, I’ve been unable to look a storebought quinoa salad in the eye without feeling a flash of guilt. There’s only one thing for it. This year, I won’t let time get the better of me. I’ll be ready for Christmas even if it comes a week or two or even three early. I’ll be up to my armpits in salads before you know it. Or, if not salad, then at least cold buttered pikelets. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Panthers purr on day one PROVINCIAL

Swashbuckling innings: Pearcedale dominated Sorrento in their MPCA Provincal match. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By IT Gully PEARCEDALE is just 39 runs away from victory after dominating Sorrento on the opening day of their MPCA Provincial clash. Sorrento won just one battle for the afternoon, the toss, and it did them no good at all. The Sorras were put to the sword and made to look second rate by the Panthers, rolled for just 98. Pearcedale’s Chris Dew started with the new ball and had an immediate impact, removing both Sorrento openers, Corey Harris (4) and Tom Clarke (5). At that stage the Sorras were 2/12. Things really turned pair-shaped for the home side when Jedd Falck was run out for 10, just as he and skipper Bobby Wilson were resurrecting the innings. Beau Scoble then got involved for the Panthers, including picking up Leigh Poholke for a blob, and finished the afternoon with 2/16 from nine over, Dew finished with 4/43 from 23 and skipper Kaine Smith jumped on the gravy train and cleaned up with 3/8 from 7.5 overs. Wilson top scored for the Sorras with 22, while Liam O’Connor chimed in with 19. With 28 overs left in the day’s play, Pearcedale lost opener Brad Trotter (4)

early but were cruising at the end of the day with Dew unbeaten on 30 and Will Kennedy on 21. Pearcedale will resume on 1/60. Mt Eliza has the upper hand over old foe Mornington and looks highly likely to grab victory in this match. Mornington batted first but could only muster 144, thanks largely to Michael Heib, who made 41 batting at nine. The next best bat for the Dogs was Brad McDonald with 21. Lyle House did most of the damage with the ball for the Mounties, picking up 4/38 from 21 overs, while Nick Baron took 2/33 from 15.2 overs. The Doggies started sensationally with the ball, removing both openers Damien Kent (9) and Tim Clarke (1) before the score had reached 15. However, Josh Goudge (15) and Keith Biggs (25) were unbeaten at stumps with Mt Eliza in a strong position at 2/50. Peninsula Old Boys have set Baxter 212 for victory and the reigning champs will already go into day two with star Daniel Warwick back in the sheds. Baxter rolled POB for 211 and had to face the final two overs of the day. Bowling the second and last over of the day, POB’s Tom Shyler had War-

Christides hit 41 to get the visitors away to a strong start. The Parkers then lost quick wickets before Daniel Ballard (34) and Ricky Ramsdale (21) got things going again. Andrew Stapleton added 19 runs at the end which were handy. Flinders’ skipper Neil Barfuss was the best of the bowlers with 3/34 from 20 overs, while Will Tuck picked up 3/42 from 15. Pines and Red Hill are locked in an interesting battle after the conclusion of the opening day. Pines batted first and made 166. Brent Martin did the bulk of the damage with the ball for the Hillmen with 3/45 from 23 overs, while Simon Dart snared 2/18. The Hillmen faced the final four overs of the day and lost the dangerous Matt Merifield for a duck, courtesy of Pat Jackson. The Hillmen will resume this week at 1/13 after Andrew Mock (7) and Riley Shaw (6) saw their side through to stumps.

The Main game: Main Ridge got 260 runs on the board against Long Island. It is now up to their bowlers. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Ducs are all lined up against Eagles PENINSULA

By IT Gully MOOROODUC has placed itself in a wonderful position to knock over Somerville after the first day of round five in MPCA Peninsula cricket. The Ducs batted first in perfect conditions and progressed to 210 before being bowled out with nine overs left in the day. Ben Williams got the visitors away to a solid start with 42 at the top of the innings, while Rashimal Mendis provided great support at four with 57, including six boundaries. Keeper Nick Williams added 28 and there was some wag in the tail, which saw the Ducs get past 200. The Eagles used seven bowlers throughout the innings, Blake Terlaak the best of them with 3/33 from 17 overs. Jarryd Parker claimed 2/28 from six overs and skipper Jayde Herrick opened the attack with 2/31 from 11 overs. Somerville got away to a woeful start in the chase, losing its first three wick-

ets for just nine runs with openers Parker and Brad Jones removed for ducks and Sean Parker for four. Pathum De Mel picked up 2/4 and Kenny Cremen 1/9 for the Ducs. Bailey Henderson and Brenton Alp will resume for the Eagles on Saturday with the score on 3/22. Main Ridge has set Long Island a healthy score to chase down after batting first and making 9/260 at Ditterich Reserve. We all know that 260 is probably a sub-par score on the smaller Main Ridge deck, however, runs on the board give the Ridge the upper hand. Michael Holmes opened for the Ridge with 50, Shaun Foster was runout for 72, Nick Jewell made 25 and Ed Aarons scored 55 to get the Ridge past 250 and in a commanding position. Lachy Dobson was expensive for the Islanders with 3/87 from 21 overs, while Andrew Tweddle snared 3/58 from 18 overs. Delacombe Park was unable to capitalise on a great start against Flinders but still managed a good score of 237. Jon Guthrie opened with 64 and Nick

wick caught by Dylan O’Malley for a duck, leaving Baxter at 1/4 at stumps. Ealier in the day, Baxter would have been reasonably happy with the effort of the bowlers, although Jon Forrest did get away from the visitors with a fine knock of 79. Forrest saw POB go from 4/55 to 6/190 when he was finally out. Hugh Peacock was also very good for POB with 36 and Wade Pelzer continued his great form with 34. Ben Brittain was the pick of the Baxter bowlers with 3/17 while Chamika Sattambi snared 3/40 from 16 overs. Langwarrin has given itself every opportunity to win away against Crib Point. The Magpies batted first after winning the toss and made 162. Jake Prosser was once again in the wickets for the Kangas with 3/23 from 18 overs, including eight maidens, while Matt Campbell picked up 2/41 from 18.1 overs. Skipper Trav Campbell opened the bowling with 2/30 from 13 overs. Langwarrin faced the final three overs of the day and came away unscathed. They will resume at 0/12 with Tay Smith and the in-form Matt Prosser at the crease.

Tigers tough against the Hills DISTRICT

By IT Gully A MIDDLE order revival has seen Seaford Tigers go from being in trouble to holding the upper hand in its MPCA District clash against Heatherhill. The Tigers won the toss and batted first on their home deck but looked to be in all sorts of trouble early when it lost its opening three batsmen for just 11 runs. Skipper David James was out for four, Dave Roach for two and Anthony Joel for three, all courtesy of Hill’s

PAGE 48

opening quick Jake Theobald, who was on fire early. The Tigers needed some intervention and it came in the form of Mackenzie Gardner and Ash Mills. Gardner hit 48 and Mills 56 to help the Tigers move on from 3/11 to 4/89. Jack Brooking then played one of his finest First XI innings with 50 and Jon Plakourakis added 36 to help the Tigers to a more than respectable 8/262 – a long way from 3/11. Theobald finished with 3/53 from 21 overs for the Hills, while Jon Powell and Luke Whitmore picked up two

wickets each. Tigers’ neighbour, Seaford, didn’t fare as well against Rosebud at Olympic Park. Seaford batted first and were restricted to just 138 in 75 overs. Jason Nagel was at his absolute vintage best, toiling for 28 overs for a sensational return of 5/62. Chip off the ol’ block Pat Nagel was equally as impressive, bowling 19 overs and finishing with 3/31, including eight overs. Billy Quigley bowled 10 overs and went for just nine runs, while Nathan

O’Sullivan snared 1/9 from seven overs. The Buds were simply superb with the ball. In reply, the home side is 0/3. Mt Martha has placed itself in a strong position against Rye, scoring 226 on the opening day of their clash. Rye faced the final five overs of the day and lost opener Coen Packer for a duck, leaving the Demons at 1/8 at stumps. Earlier, Reds’ opener Ryan Godwin top scored with 69 while a number of batsmen got starts before going out in their 20’s. Todd Harnett was the pick of the

Rye bowlers with 4/49 from 20.3 overs while Zac Stephenson picked up 2/55. The match between Hastings and Baden Powell will go down to the wire after a staggering 14 wickets fell on the opening day. Hastings batted first and once again failed dismally, rolled for just 119. Rob Hearn top scored with 23 and Isuru Dias hit 20. Sean Hewitt made 19. However, Baden Powell wasn’t much better with the bat, losing 4/23 in the final 11 overs of the day. Ryan McNamara and Dias picked up two wickets each.

The Saints go marching on SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BALNARRING continued its superb form on Saturday on day one of MPCA Sub District cricket, scoring a massive 9/324 against Ballam Park. Seasoned campaigner Pete Mereszko was the star of the show for the Saints, opening with 74, including 13 boundaries, while there was plenty of support throughout the afternoon

from the rest of the line up. Darrel Brown scored a half century (50), skipper Mal Coutts added 41, Mark Walles 39 and Nathan Kleinig 35 as the Saints marched past 300. Ballam Park will need to produce something very special this week to win the match. Tootgarook has left Dromana with plenty of work to do after scoring 9/247 on Saturday at Pier St. Despite a superb 5/49 from 15 overs

from Jack Fowler, the Frogs have given themselves the upper hand. Dromana’s ‘lesser-likes’ need to make a contribution with the bat this week if they are to win. Tyabb was solid with the bat against Carrum in their match at Roy Dore Reserve, scoring 7/246. Jarrod White was exceptional for the Yabbies with 81, while Nick Taranto scored 42 and Matt Dimkos 45. Brodie Bennett was also solid with 37.

Jake D’Atri bowled 29 overs for the Lions and finished with 2/74 while Cory Foster and Deegan Vokes each picked up two wickets. Frankston YCW has started well in its run chase against Carrum Downs. The Cougars batted first and made 177, David Dervan again top scoring with 53 and Leon McConnell opening with 46. The Stonecats faced the final eight

overs of the day and will resume on day two at 0/25. Patrick Beckham top scored with 78 for Skye in its match against Boneo. Clint Donohue added 22 and Rob Gruar 21 to help Skye to 200. Leigh Janssen was superb for the Pandas, bowling a whopping 40 overs and finishing with 6/71, including 18 maidens.

Is Alana Murphy a Matilda in waiting? SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THERE is a remarkable talent in our midst and she only turned 12 in September. Alana Murphy was five when she played her first game for Langwarrin. She scored twice at Lawton Park that day and she’s been scoring goals for fun every since. She is the second youngest member of Victoria’s mini National Training Centre squad which competed in the 2017 women’s NPL under-15 competition. Her team beat up on most opponents throughout the season losing just one game and strolling to the title with five rounds to go. Murphy was initially attracted to soccer through the involvement of her older brother Owen and father Steve. She played in boys’ leagues for some of her time at Langy and was just eight years old in 2014 when playing in an under-11 girls’ league. “I had to make a decision to stay with the girls or go with the boys’ league,” said Murphy. She chose the boys’ under-10s league in 2015 under coach Gary Brisbane and has never looked back. “I think it was a better challenge for me because it was like more physical and faster and I improved a lot in that year.” At the end of the 2015 season Murphy played futsal, an indoor fivea-side competition, was the MVP in an under-12 boys’ league and represented Victoria at the national futsal championships. The introduction of a women’s NPL competition for 2016 saw Murphy surprise many onlookers when she bypassed local club Southern United and signed for Box Hill United. She had been selected for a Skill Acquisition Program under Stefano Sakalis the previous season and chose to join Sakalis’ under-13 squad at Wembley Park. She was just 10 years old for most of the season but handled the elite

competition with aplomb. Box Hill finished third and lost the under-13 grand final 1-0 to Bulleen with the decider coming three minutes from time. Murphy’s 24 goals clinched Box Hill’s top scorer award and best and fairest. She was runner-up in the race for league Golden Boot honours. Partway through that season she joined a train-on squad doing one session a fortnight with the NTC and at the end of the season was invited to train with the select group on a regular basis. In October last year the Murphy family received a phone call from the NTC saying that they were delighted with what they’d seen from Alana and she was offered a full-time spot. The girl with the long ponytail again tormented opposition defences, scoring 23 goals to be NTC’s top scorer this year and third top scorer in the league. Every astute judge that has seen Murphy in action rates her highly. Skill has been described as a love affair between a child and a ball and for Murphy it’s a love affair that could carry her to the sport’s dizzy heights. “I want to play for the Matildas.

That’s my goal,” she says in a matterof-fact manner. Stephanie Catley and Sam Kerr are her current Matilda favourites. “Steph Catley is really calm on the ball and her passing is accurate and if she loses the ball she transitions really quick,” said Murphy. “And I like scoring goals and Sam Kerr scores goals.” Kerr scored one and set up two goals in the Matildas’ stunning 6-1 thrashing of Brazil in California on Friday 4 August this year to clinch the Tournament of Nations. Murphy was transfixed in front of the TV in her bedroom watching her idols strut their stuff and ended up arriving at Langwarrin Park Primary School 15 minutes late that morning. “I got caught up watching it but like I don’t really care about looking at the time because when mum says go I just go.” Mum is Emily Murphy and following Alana’s dream has taken the family to national championships at Coff’s Harbour and national schoolgirls’ championships in Perth. Next month the Murphy family and Alana’s grandmother are off to Adelaide to watch her play for Victoria’s

under-12s in the national schoolgirls championships for the second time. While winning awards has become second nature to the young goalscoring prodigy she is acutely aware of areas she must work on to raise her game to greater heights. “I mainly use my right foot (scoring goals) but I can finish on my left,” said Murphy. “Sometimes I need to take my shots a bit quicker and not have too many touches and every now and then my first touch is not so good. “I often kick the ball at a wall really hard then control it to improve my touch.” It will be interesting to see how she develops next year when she becomes a student at Rowville Secondary College, joining its renowned soccer program under noted developmental coach Ian Greener. Although Murphy has made her mark in front of goal she is keen to play in a more withdrawn role as an attacking midfielder in order “to become involved a lot more.” Whichever onfield role evolves her 2015 coach has no doubts about her ability to reach the pinnacle of the sport. “If you took her long hair away you couldn’t tell the difference between her and the boys,” said Brisbane. “She’s a naturally gifted player and as for having a soccer brain she looks like she’s been playing for 20 years. “She reads the play really well and as a minimum I expect that she’ll play for Melbourne Victory or Melbourne City. “But I can see a future similar to Bailey Wright. She’ll leave Langwarrin and one day she’ll be wearing the green and gold.” Meanwhile Mornington has made a key signing with the capture of experienced central defender Jamie Cumming from Avondale. “It’s a fantastic get as Avondale had the best defensive record in the NPL this year and Jamie played just about every game,” said Mornington gaffer Adam Jamieson.

Cumming has had stints at Oakleigh Cannons, Bentleigh Greens and Heidelberg United and was on Langwarrin’s radar before heading to Dallas Brooks Park. Mornington also has secured the services of goalkeeping coach Peter Blasby who has resigned from his position with Bentleigh Greens. Local women’s club Southern United continues to fall foul of the pied piper effect as senior players are lured to NPL rival Bayside United which has secured the services of former Southern coaches Rob Giabardo and Bill Mihaloudis. Bayside dropped a bombshell recently when it announced it had secured the signature of 2017 Southern captain and women’s NPL Gold Medal winner Candela Ferreyra-Bas. Within days Bayside announced the capture of the Fonau sisters from Southern, goalkeeper Christine and defender Lisa while Elisabeth Robers, Savanah Anastopoulos, Rebecca Saber and Tayla Evans have also been linked with Bayside. Word is that Southern isn’t going to take this lying down and don’t be surprised if some Bayside players head in the opposite direction. Southern starts pre-season training tonight at Monterey Reserve at 7.30pm. The 2018 Steve Wallace Memorial Cup will be held on Saturday 3 February at Baxter Park. Just on $9000 for Frankston Hospital’s emergency department has been raised from the three previous tournaments. Once again competing clubs will be split into two groups and play each other in a round-robin format. So far Langwarrin, Mornington, Casey Comets, Frankston Pines, Skye United, Peninsula Strikers, Seaford United and Baxter have signed up and tournament organiser Tanya Wallace is hopeful that Rosebud Heart will again be represented. State League 2 club Old Scotch is keen to participate and is the likely 10th team in the annual event.

Gift’s return First professional win for Rosebud Country Club’s Marchesani builds momentum A PUSH by Frankston Athletic Club has seen the Frankston Gift gain support from local businesses with CORE 24 signing on as the 2018 naming rights partner. The Frankston Gift will make its return on the 14 January 2018 after being halted for the past six years. The gift has seen the number of sponsors grow to 12 and is fast becoming a major drawcard for local, state and interstate athletes. Being held on the same weekend as the Rye Gift, athletes are likely to be staying in and around Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula over the whole weekend, enjoying the quality services that the area has to offer. Frankston Athletic Club president Andrew Wells said that it is great to see the level of support from local businesses and council to help the event get up and running, and that it would be exciting to see it all come together on the day. Wells commented that any extra sponsorship that is received will increase the available prize money enticing more competitors to the gift and to the local area. The races are open to any registered Victorian Athletic League athletes, Little Athletics members and Frankston Athletic Club members with $1500 currently in the prize pool for both the men’s and women’s gifts. Further details can be obtained from the CORE 24 Frankston Gift website at www.frankstongift.com.au.

ROSEBUD Country Club member James Marchesani has made the comeback of his life to secure his first professional title on Sunday 5 November. Marchesani sunk his final putt for the tournament to score a birdie and a one point victory over his playing partner Callum Tarren at the PGA Tour – China Clearwater Bay Open in Hong Kong. Marchesani trailed four shots behind Tarren as he headed into the back nine of his final round but he said he just kept focussing on his own game and try to finish off strongly. “Heading into the tournament I knew I had been playing well as I had been up and around the leaders in the Western Australia Open and the Queensland Open, where I was finishing off quite strong,” he said. “I felt like a win was getting closer and closer.” The gap closed to two shots after the 10th hole as he sank an 18-foot birdie putt and Tarren putted for a bogey. Marchesani then made another birdie on the 14th before drawing even with an eagle on the 15th, as Tarren birdied. It came down to the final hole of the tournament where Tarren finished with a par and Marchesani lined up for a six-foot birdie putt. “The heart was certainly pumping but I just took a sit and lined it up and I had to treat it like any other shot,” Marchesani said. After lining it up, Marchesani coolly sunk the birdie putt to claim his first professional title and the RMB270,000 first prize (approximately $53,000).

“It was a pretty amazing feeling to come back like that,” Marchesani said. “It still hasn’t really sunk in that I won it and that it actually happened.” There’s no stopping Marchesani’s momentum as he flew back into Aus-

tralia on the Monday and is straight back into practising. “The next three weeks are pretty big in Australia with the New South Wales Open, the Australian Open and then the Australian PGA after that,” he said.

“I now have these to knuckle down and focus on and with the confidence running high it would be nice to get another win on the board.”

Rye Sports & Social Club Sportsperson of the Year Awards Photos and story Barry Irving AWARD night for Rye’s sportsman of the year was held on 27 October at the Rye RSL. Gary Sanford from Bendigo Community Bank was MC. Mornington Peninsula Shire was represented by Councillors Brian Payne and Hugh Fraser. The seven Rye Sports Clubs were all represented with committee members and family present to support the nominees. Gary Sanford interviewed both the administrators and senior nominees while Fiona Sanford carried out the interviews with the juniors. Certainly no one envied the shire’s responsibility in making the final selection as all the nominees were very well qualified in their roles as both competitors and administrators within their individual clubs. Nominees for this years awards were: Rye Cricket Club - Tom Baron (senior), Stella Appleford (Junior). Rye Football/Netball Club - Harry Whitty (senior), Ruby Jones (Junior). Rye & District Basketball Club - Kayleb Goss (Junior), Fay McCormick (Administrator). Southern Peninsula Little Athletics - Isabella Mitsikas (Junior), Bryce Mulvogue (Administrator). Rye Junior Football Club - Johanna Mott (Administrator), Jordyn Allen (Junior). Rye Tennis Club - Andrea Morris (Administrator), Alexia Liparoti (Junior). Winners of this years awards: Senior Sportsperson of the Year: Harry Whitty, Rye Football/Netball Club. Junior Sportsperson of the Year: Isabella Mitsikis, Southern Peninsula Little Athletics. Administrator of the Year: Faye McCormick, Rye & District Basketball Club.
